Where to fly your drone

Brean Sands added to Beaches and Seaside Resorts in South West by McSteamy2010 on 19/08/2020

This was one of the first places I ever flew my drones, with ease of parking on the beach itself you can fly straight from the boot of your car. I think parking cost are around £5-7 for the day. Huge stretch of coastline, perfect for flying what ever your flying. POI : SS Nornen (pictured)

Corby Bridge (Wetheral Viaduct) (By CSB73)

Corby Bridge was built between 1830 and 1834 and carries the Carlisle to Newcastle railway over the River Eden. It stands about 100ft above the river and also carries a footpath to connect the villages of Wetheral and Corby. You can park beside the road beneath the viaduct itself and follow a public footpath to the riverside. Be mindful of overhanging trees on take off then head out over the river for some great shots.

Llanberis Pass (A4086) (By Mavic2Pro)

Beautiful but rugged location. Park in car park at top of pass, along the road or in Llanberis (and get the shuttle bus). Mountains, streams, bridges, cliffs - amazing.

Lowgill Viaduct, South Lakeland (By CSB73)

Lowgill Viaduct was built in 1859 by Joseph Locke. It has been disused for years and is now classed as listed. Parking around here is limited so could be tricky. There is a small layby under one of the arches so this is a possibility if you are lucky. I flew on a windy day so couldn't get much altitude with the quad. Also both the M6 and the West Coast mainline are close by but shouldn't be a concern if flying responsibly.
